Kathua, February 27:

Making a passionate appeal to all those in public life to rise above politics and work towards restoring the inclusive character of Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference Provincial President Mr Devender Singh Rana today said the JAMMU DECLARATION is a way forward in strengthening religious bonds among communities besides reinforcing trust and unity between diverse regions.

“Coming as it is from the pluralistic region of Jammu, the declaration encompass all the religions, ethnic groups, regions and sub-regions, which actually represent the idea of J&K and will engage the people in inter-region and intra-regional dialogue to bridge the fault-lines that have unfortunately surfaced due to trust deficit over the years”, Rana said while interacting with the office bearers of the party of District Kathua Rural ‘B’, organized by its District President Shyam Narain Mehta.

Rana said the Jammu originated concept does not represent any individual or political thought but reflects the glorious ethos of the region, which has all along braved the victitudes of history and withstood test of times. This spirit was hugely in display during three decades ago when Duggarland opened up its arms for all those in distress, irrespective of religion or caste, he asserted.
